Food always good, beer very cold and staff warm and friendly. Loved the gold coin donation museum opposite, really worth a look. Something for everyone. In the best outback aussie taste. In the midst of being renovated but still open. This place will only get better.

Accommodation was basic but clean, airconditioner was good (needed that because it was high 30s), there was no table and chairs but that was OK, bottles of water were provided, the room was sufficient for the two of us and the dog (who is a giant dog). The walls are paper thin so we could feel the person on the other side when they rolled into the wall, and the conversation was audible fortunately no one snored. The Pub itself was great. The petrol station has a room full of old vehicles - reminded me a bit of the Salvador Dali museum in Figares (spain) because there was a boar's head poking out of an old car. Someone has a good sense of humour because there were also parking metres outside the pub and angle parking sign advising that you could on any angle. The staff were great - so helpful and friendly - two of them on overseas working visas. The food was hearty. Great atmosphere. Great experience. Essential visit really if you are doing a NT outback visit.

Have stayed and had meals at the Daly Waters Pub several times in the recent past. This was the first time back since the new owners took over the pub and we were very impressed! It was quite clear that they have very carefully thought about what can be improved and are investing wisely while also putting on better managers and good staff. The pub had been looking a bit tired and some of the facilities were outdated, now, this is all changing for the better. They seem to be doing everything right and it's great that this iconic place is getting some fresh love!

Fun and quirky little place to stop over. Service was super friendly. Really good pub food with a variety of meal options and clean and comfortable budget room. Campgrounds looked good too. Loved the keg Christmas tree across the road 😂

Ideal first stopover when driving out of Darwin. Friendly pub with great Atmosphere. Food was nice. Accommodation does the job, can get cold at night. Be aware of mozzies though. Check out the little museum accross the road.
